The Ruins Of Memory
The Voices of Women in the Shadow of the Holocaust
Tales of the Alchemysts Theatre Company Season 2020/2021: “The Ruins of Memory,” highlights Women’s Voices from the Holocaust featuring selections from fiction, poetry and oral histories primarily by and/or about female survivors and victims from both Ashkenazi and Sephardic communities. Combining live music, sound and movement with spoken word and song, the performance piece captures emotional snapshots of the time, delineating the mounting tension and fear that swept throughout Europe as Jews were led inexorably to their fates.
